St. Edwards College the great edu cational institution at Austin, TeXase was totally consumed by fire on Holy Thursday. The fire started in a dormitory and in a very short time was beyond control. The whole building wa~s demolished but luckily Sano lives were lost. The property loss is estimated at $170,000 and is covered with insurance of $33,000. The work of rebuilding the famous institution wili te bguea inat'-dratet'. The Mount Carmel Festival. The sisters of Mount Carmel Con vent are rejoicing over the success of their festival. They were favored with dry weather, although a little disagreeable for the dust, but the friends of the Institution, who live in the neighboring country had no difficulty in coming to town. The citizens of Thibodani and vicinity showed their appreciation of the good I work that the sisters of ?'loiot Car mel are doing for the community and for the whole parish, by visiting the fair in large numbers. The excursion from Lafayette brought a very large crowd who also contributed liberally to the success of the festival. The fair was altogether a grand suceas bo4 i fl ymisl: tutt by the nolored population for the benefit of the convent sett d the one of 577.560. The convent fair proved a grand success and the kind sisters and the good people who helped them to so ably manage it deserve the cougratu lation of the community. We are informed thlit the debt has been reduce I to $7,000, the S-ntinel hopes that the citizens of this parash and town will coutinue to help the sisters, whene' er possible, to reduce the debt until it ahull be entirely eragell. We hope that the day is not far distant whey the sisters will hatv* the joy of seeing their beautiful building free from all incumbances. MRS. L. S. ADAMS. Of Galveseto., Taga.

The i..arri:ige of -1r. Alfred N:iqnin and Miss Maria Osmich n was cele. brated on Mon lay wording at 7 o'clock at St. Josepb's Catholic Church. Mr. Naquin is well known here. He is now a resident of Rockport, Texas but is a native of Loui-tans and spent his early days in Lafourebe. He is a brother of our townsman Mr. Ozewe Naquin, and of Miss lme iWe Nequin.

Good Roads. At its last meeting the Police Jury appropriated $15 t"iw.-r.ls defraying the exp1nses of the district delegate, L. H. Lancaster. to thi, Good Roads Convection which will he held in St. Louis on April 270h.. 1903. This is a praiseworthy action on the part of that body, it is not only a substantial help but naso a stimulus to thecitizens to contribute their mite. Good roads are essential to the welfare of the parish; of this all the citizens of Lafourche are aware, for the condition of our highways during the past two months his caused tisen to realize more than ever that unless greater attention i+ given the roads they will return to the same condition that they have b en in th.e past two months whenever there is it long rainy spell. The railroad has tixed the round trip at $18 and a number of our puilic spirited citizens have already contributed their share to the fund, still that is not enough as about $50 are required for exp-ases, the testiael hopes that other names wilt be added to the following list: Sentinel.................. $2.56 J.

It is his home. It is the place in which he earns his competence and educates his children. If he wants to make it as popular, as thrifty and widely known as possible, he can not afford to he indiff ,rent to anything that will further these ends. It can be said that a town that is not worthy of the devotion of its citizena in making it widely and generally prosperous is a town in which it is not worth while to live at All. If a town is worth anything it is worthy of our greatest energy, whe ther we receive an immediate dividend in dollars and cents or wh.!ther wn merely take our share of the common benefits accorded our home town Itily (Texas,) News.
